Liela Moss and Toby Butler have played together in the British rock outfit the Duke Spirit for the past decade, and the two recently branched out with a side project, Roman Remains. The duo’s debut EP, Energy You, was just released on H.O.T. Records, and you can pick it up now over at iTunes; a full-length is also on the way for 2014 release.
Now you can take an exclusive first look at the video for “This Stone Is Starting to Bleed,” a glitchy, blistering synth-punk cut that soundtracks a shaman’s peculiar ritual as the members of Roman Remains watch from the shadows.
“Directed by our close friend Marcus McSweeney and filmed on the Southeast English coast, our psychedelic shaman weaves his magic in the fire, whilst we lurk, waiting,” Butler tells Rolling Stone of the clip. “We were really interested in making a video that didn’t spell everything out for you and was open-ended. He’s an outsider, and we don’t know what he’s doing, but he’s not to be afraid of or suspicious of. I’ve said too much.”
